Why did you choose Mount Olive? “I felt like this team was the perfect fit for me. They have that winning mentality that I strive for. I connected with the team especially Evan & T. I loved the coaching staff and just felt at home at this college. It was my number 1 pick over all the other schools I looked at. I think Mount Olive is the place to be.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “I think if we fix some little things on our offense & defense and play like we did against Buford the rest of the season. We could make a run at state.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my mother and father for always believing in me and pushing me to be better as a person and in lacrosse. Also to my older brother Clinton Bryant he’s the reason I started playing in the first place and I thank him for that.

“Most of all I’d like to thank my defense Coach, Coach Pat for molding me into such a dominate lacrosse defender my freshman through junior years. He’s the reason I’m where I am today. I would just like to thank all the people who have made an impact in my life and helped me be okay at lacrosse and get better at it.”
